PRINCE Harry has sparked fury with a clumsy metaphor that appeared to suggest coronavirus was nature punishing the elderly for bad behaviour.
During an ultra-woke speech while launching a new Netflix-style streaming platform for climate documentaries, Harry urged viewers to “be a raindrop” that heals the Earth for future generations.
While the sentiment was largely applauded by fans, his wording was mocked as “brainwashed, woke, attention seeking”, while others branded him a “hypocrite” given his past private jet flights around the world.
Harry added: “It’s almost as though Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour to really take a moment and think about what we’ve done.”
Harry went on to ask “did the elderly and vulnerable deserved to be punished?” – a question that left viewers fuming in that it appeared to suggestion the “punishment” for was “bad behaviour”.
One wrote on Twitter “Prince Harry the Hypocrite, so the elderly and vulnerable deserved to be punished? I wish he would stop lecturing us with his wife’s woke point of view.”
Another posted on Twitter: “Brainwashed, woke, attention seeking victim Prince Harry thinks we should be ‘raindrops’”, while a third said “This is a complete and utter lefty woke.”
